It seems as if COVID-19 illness has overtaken our lives and our communities. We worry for our vulnerable family members, pray and care for the seriously ill, and wonder about the future. Equally disturbing is the steep economic downturn which has taken the jobs of so many and threatens small businesses everywhere.
We at Catholic Charities of Idaho have mobilized all of our resources and service capacity to assist and accompany those most impacted by the pandemic. Our mental health professionals are offering counseling services remotely, by computer video, to individuals who are at home and struggling with depression, anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. CCI social workers are helping unemployed families find food, shelter, and other basic necessities, even as we help them contend with issues like domestic violence, substance abuse, and social isolation. The pandemic applies overwhelming stress to families who need to navigate an overtaxed immigration system, but our CCI staff are still on the job, bringing compassion, care and quality legal advocacy and support to our newcomer neighbors – right in their own homes.
Pope Francis has said that the pandemic has radically changed the way all of us live, perhaps forever. The Holy Father also says that this is “the moment for believers to see the poor.” A gift to Catholic Charities is a way to do that – a way to make a difference by reaching out, through our services and ministries, to support those most harmed by the events of this time.
Please make a gift today. It will go far to help those most in need. Thank you!
You may make a one-time contribution to help Catholic Charities of Idaho serve our community, or you may provide consistent, dependable support to CCI and those we serve by giving a monthly gift through an Automatic Deduction from your credit card. You may adjust your giving level or cancel your commitment at any time.
